MulchFest — where people can feed their dried-out Christmas trees into a wood chipper — apparently has come and gone in Tompkins Square Park. But some useful mulch has been left behind for the taking.
As of Tuesday evening, there was a big pile by the Hare Krishna Tree.
Mulch is good for spreading on the top of potted plants and for use in gardens. It helps retain moisture in the soil and suppress weeds, and makes gardens look more attractive. In other words — it’s all good!
